Star Gazing



We had friends round to supper.

Fairly new-wed as it happened.

All went well until another

Guest appeared, uninvited.

Dressed in black he offered

Each couple there his

Calling card, nicely embossed.

It just said Death .

There was no address or

Telephone number.  Just

Everywhere in the bottom

Left hand corner and

Anytime I like bottom right.

“See you soon” he said, “No

Need to try and call me,

 I will be in touch”.

Smiling he left.  We were all

A little quiet after that, but

After another glass of wine

Things livened up a bit.

They went home early.
